Protecting our Patients from Coronavirus

Making sure our patients and staff are safe is our top priority.

While the risk of getting the COVID-19 in the US is currently low, we know many patients are concerned about the spread of Coronavirus.

Protocols we already practice as healthcare professionals are some of the best ways to prevent the transmission of the virus.

If you have recently traveled outside of the US, or have had close contact with someone who has, or if you have a fever, cough or other symptoms of acute respiratory distress, please call our office to reschedule your visit. Many of our patients are children and elderly and have unique risks if they are exposed to COVID-19.

Thank you for helping us to protect all of our patients.
